Find if itemdata value in listbox matches current variable

I have a piece of code which is pulling a value from an SQL table and assigning it to a variable called MVID.  I also have a listbox called lstAxis which has multiple select set on.  The 1st item in the listbox is "ALL" and after that it is populated with data which has a numeric value for each item's .itemdata.

What I need to do is run some code if the MVID variable matches EXACTLY a seleted item's .itemdata value or the ALL item.

I have looked at instr but that seems to throw up false negatives for instance if MVID = 2 then the code runs if the item's .itemdata is 2 or 222 or 123 etc.

Thanks in advance for your help

But I need to check multiple items in the list as there could be several selected.  Is there a way of looping?

Try this:

    Dim i As Integer
    For i = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1
        If List1.Selected(i) Then
            If List1.ItemData(i) = MVID Then
                'match found
            End If
        End If
    Next
